We have been watching aquatic birds and waders in this nullah in our spare time for decades.  On 13 September 2003 we were watching a Painted Snipe skulking at the edge of the water taking advantage of every bit of cover.

Two small chicks were following the snipe in the same manner. It approached a small bush just near the water’s edge when a pig from the opposite bank waded in the direction of the snipe.
